Sagittarius - protects the heart
The next full moon on Monday June 17, is in the pericardium meridian. The pericardium is the protective sheath (layer) that surrounds the heart. The pericardium, heart and blood vessels run the circulation system. This meridian is the mediator between our emotions (water) and our passion (fire). The quality of fire purifies and transforms. Like fire, this energy goes towards the heavens, not bound by gravity.
